Sager 9860I ready your posts and decided to join this forum. I had a Sager 9860 as well and about 3 months after the 1 year warranty expired I had mine burn up. Prior to that the battery charger always thought it was pulling AC power. I had to eat the repair bill. It rain me about $930 with shipping and they changed the board out to a 9890 board with Geforce Go 7900 512MB. I had the ati x800. To be honest Im not so happy with it after I got it back. When I first got it it had 3 pixels always on.. I got passed that because it ran great.. well now I dont think it runs so great, WoW, Far Cry, Half Life all have some video stuttering. UT2004 runs great maxed but I dont think Im pushing it. 3dmark 2005 would lockup on the CPU tests however when I set Affinity to 1 it would pass just fine 3dmark 2006 runs fine and Prime 95 two sessions of it full load ran it for about 9 hours with no issues. So its hard to isolate any problem.
Anyway I saw the forum and you guys talking about motherboards I wanted to report mine burning up as well.
